Discussion WK8:Global Cybersecurity Challenges & SolutionsChoose one of the global cybersecurity challenges identified in this week's readings and videos. Preparea 3 to 5 paragraph briefing statement in which you discuss how cooperation and collaboration betweencountries can be used to address / overcome one specific challenge (e.g. cybercrime, cyber-attacks,cyber-terrorism, data protection, protection of intellectual property rights, freedom of speech / combatingcensorship, etc.)Post your briefing statement as a reply to this topic. Provide in-text citations and references for 3 or moreauthoritative sources. Put the reference list at the end of your posting.The GFCE is a key initiative to give political momentum to global cyber capacitybuilding, make available technical expertise as well as new funding to strengthen cybersecurity, help fight cybercrime, better protect our data and support e-governance.It is vital to include different stakeholders in a debate that could prove to be the next keydilemma in international security.All will benefit from getting the knowledge and best practices together in one platform.Societies need to rapidly develop their capacity to take full advantage of cyberspaceand to overcome evolving challenges in this field.One in five IT security professionals say their enterprises have been the target of an advanced persistent threat (APT) yet 62 percent of organizations have not increased security training in 2014, according to the ISACA 2014 APT Survey. A separate study by Cisco estimates that close to 1,000,000 positions for security professionals remain unfilled.1 These indicators of a massive talent shortage are compounded by a skills gap, with few cybersecurity programs emphasizing expertise in business strategy andcommunication, in addition to technology. To help address this growing worldwide skills crisis, global IT association ISACA today launched the Cybersecurity Nexus (CSX) program at its North America CACS conference.ISACA chapter leaders help introduce Cybersecurity Nexus. (Photo: Business Wire)CSX, developed in collaboration with chief information security officers and cybersecurity experts from leading companies around the world, fills an unmet need for a single, central location where security professionals and their enterprises canfind cybersecurity research, guidance, certificates and certifications, education, mentoring and community. All CSX materials are designed to provide security-related information within the larger business context.“Unless the industry moves now to address the cybersecurity skills crisis, threats like major retail data breaches and the Heartbleed bug will continue to outpace the ability of organizations to defend against them,” said Robert Stroud, ISACA international president-elect and vice president of strategy and innovation for IT Business Management at CA Technologies. “ISACA is proud to help close this gap with a comprehensive program that provides expert-level cybersecurity resources tailored to each stage in a cybersecurity professional’s career.”
